Tyson Foods and LULAC Donate 30,000 Pounds of Chicken to Miami
The partnership provided more than 600,000 meals in five major cities across the country.
More than 1,000 people stood in line to receive food – many of whom waited since 4 AM that morning. Low-income individuals and families received free chicken, fresh produce, canned goods, and medical program enrollment assistance.
In Miami, more than 1,000 unaccompanied minors live with families awaiting refugee status determination. For more information on LULAC's Border Children Relief Project, visit LULAC.org/relief.
“Feeding South Florida is proud to partner with LULAC and work alongside them to ensure families receive the support they need to thrive. Tyson has been a wonderful contributor towards our mission of ending hunger in South Florida and this event is truly an opportunity to show how important collaboration is to the community,” said Paco Velez, President and CEO, Feeding South Florida Food Bank.
“I was honored to participate in Saturday’s event as our community came together to help one another. Giving back to our community is one of my favorite aspects of representing the great people of Florida’s 26th district,” said Congressman Joe Garcia of Florida.
15.4% of the South Florida population is food insecure, with 871,920 people not knowing from where they will get their next meal.
